Dennis Conner

I don't know if I can do this here, but here it goes..

Dennis Conner is not loved or wanted over at SA..but if you can...jump over this side, just for a little bit and read a FIRST TIME EVER!!

Dennis Conner gives an interview to SA!! yes..of all places, he accepts an interview by one of the places that most hammered him...

Read what he says about the J24's..(opinion that I agree with), and stars and much much more...

Worth the reading

I agree on the J-24 but the J-30 is a close second.....

That is a good interview - DC comes off as honest, direct and down to earth (at least as anyone who owns well over half a dozen different boats can be). Props to him for agreeing to what could have been a bit of a hatchet job.

You can all bite me about the J24 cause the star is such a perfect boat


But it was a good read

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

DC was in Dallas a few years ago for a regatta. He has always been my absolute favorite skipper!!! I agree with DC.
